    Next I followed the kirigami steps to make sakura from one of my <a href="http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/kirigami-sakura">previous posts (click here)</a>

    If you don't want sakura, play around with the drawing. Round the tip, add extra petals etc...

Thanks for the tutorial. I've never heard of Kirigami either, but I have been wanting to create miniature origami projects to
give myself something even more detailed and....
YOU gave it to me. This looks fun, delicate, and time consuming. Just what I need.

GREAT PROJECT!!!!
